POONCH, Nov 13: Amid a series of ceasefire violations and infiltration bids at the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch and IB in Samba sector, Indian and Pakistani troops again celebrated Diwali at Chakan-Da-Bagh on November 13.

However, heat of ceasefire violations and infiltration bids was observed at the time of sweets exchange ceremony as officers on both sides just exchanged sweets and returned. On the request of Pakistani authorities, army officials gave them a picture of Indian woman who is expected to have ex-filtrated to Pakistan Administered Kashmir (PAK).

Indian troops presented a packet of sweets and dry fruits to Pakistan army on Diwali while PAK Army officers wished their counterparts ‘Happy Diwali’ and gave sweets and gifts.

The sweets exchange ceremony took place at 11.00 AM in which Major Sushil, Major Sumesh and Rajinder PD Bhol of 21 Bihar represented Indian Army and Lt Col Faisal of 653 Mujahid, Major Yasir, Captain Zia and Namaz represented Pakistani Army.

Notably, the exchange ceremony was attended by major level officers and Commandants remained away. Last three consecutive years, Major level officers from both sides exchanged sweets despite tensions between both armies.

Sources said that Indian officer were willing to register a strong protest in front of their PAK counterparts regarding routine ceasefire incidents and spurt in infiltration bids on LOC in last couple of weeks but PAK army officers returned immediately after exchanging sweet.

Senior army officers remained tightlipped over the issues. However, they admitted to have given picture of the Indian woman who ex-filtrated to other side and that the Pakistani army had asked for it from Indian army through hot line.
